FRA discusses Sustainable Development Goals with EU Council

On 14 June, the Agency discussed the fundamental rights dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals in the European Union at the EU Council’s Working Party on 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

FRA presented examples of relevant statistical data and other evidence it produces, for example on violence against women and discrimination of migrants and minorities. Such data could be used by the EU and its Member States in their voluntary reports on progress made in reaching SDGs. In 2019, FRA’s annual fundamental rights report will have a dedicated section on the Sustainable Development Goals.
